I know it's rhetorical, but:  
Gay marriage: the database engineering perspective

In my last job the boss designed the marriage link schema and he didn't do too badly. There was a MarriedToBorrowerID on the Borrower table (which sometimes ended up being NULL, which meant I had to go on and fix it) so in theory two borrowers of any gender could be linked together.

However the query which populated the dropdown for titles didn't cater for gay marriage - though I have no doubt my boss would have included it in the query were it a legal entity in Ireland!
